2006 Toyota Matrix XR 4dr Wagon (1.8L 4cyl 5M)
Review
I really like Toyota. Their fuel economy is superb. I guess I just expected a little more from the Matrix. 126HP is just not enough to really pull a 2,700 pound car. Maybe if they made it 400-500 pounds lighter, it would have better gas mileage and be a bit faster (Civic gets 40mpg HWY and has more power). It's very spacious, and comfortable for passangers, but the driver's seat stands too tall. It shifts beautifully, and the interior design is very sporty, but the chrome trimming has to go. Handling is like any econobox; average, comfortable, sometimes smooth or bumpy, but that can always be changed with aftermarket products.
Favorite Features
Beautiful interior, sleek, sportish style, nice braking, roomy, comfortable for passangers, 17" wheels, insurance friendly, 115V plug.
Suggested Improvements
Better gas mileage, A lot lighter or more power, full control of lights, internal antenna, interior lighting should be blue on red, better rear bumper design.
